A worn t-shirt and expressions of the inexpressible
Mélanie Matranga according to Andrew Berardini
"I am wearing these words. I wish they were bespoke, well-cut, stylish. I wish I wore them with carefree ease, the grace that comes with joyful confidence, sprightly health, and an unburdened conscious. But these words are second-hand, I found most of them in the scrap heap, stole others from my betters, and none of them are rightly mine. They are worn and stained, clunky and awkward, a poor fit for what I really mean to say." Read more on TextWork.

Universes Undone
Neïl Beloufa according to Christina Li
"In 1978, sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick wrote a short essay on fictive universes and subjective realities. Mindful of the authoritarian power of fiction and imagination, he set forth to expound on the danger of spurious realities manufactured by the media, governments, and other interest groups in order to exercise control over mass behavior and perception."

Upcoming essays:
Kapwani Kiwanga according to Sarah Rifky
Jean-Charles Hue according to Chris Sharp
Hubert Duprat according to Martin Herbert


TextWork aims to foster and support the work of artists active in the French art scene through the publication of critical essays produced by international writers. With this program, the Ricard Foundation reinforces its commitment of over 20 years to supporting and disseminating this art scene. TextWork is initiated in partnership with the French Ministry of Culture.
